Property description

Purchasing this property with A lifetime lease

This property is offered at a reduced price for people aged over 60 through Homewise’s Home for Life Plan. Through the Home for Life Plan, anyone aged over sixty can purchase a lifetime lease on this property which discounts the price from its full market value. The size of the discount you are entitled to depends on your age, personal circumstances and property criteria and could be anywhere between 8.5% and 59% from the property’s full market value. The above price is for guidance only. It is based on our average discount and would be the estimated price payable by a 69-year-old single male. As such, the price you would pay could be higher or lower than this figure.

For more information or a personalised quote, just give us a call. Alternatively, if you are under 60 or would like to purchase this property without a Home for Life Plan at its full market price of £150,000, please contact Ward & Partners.

Property description

A period Grade II listed cliff-top building is the location for this first floor apartment in Folkestone, serviced by a lift as well as stairs, and located in a really special place.

Ground floor communal access is secured by a door entry system, with side key access leading to a path directly to the stunning communal gardens and seating areas to the rear of the building. Stand on the raised garden area for views of the sea and take the path down to the Harbour Arm and dine in the famous Rocksalt restaurant, followed by a glass of champagne at the Lighthouse Bar.

From the front of the building, a short walk down the hill results in quick foot access to the harbour and all of the local amenities on offer there. Evenings and weekends in particular are a joy, with the cobble stones of The Old High Street leading up into Folkestone’s Creative Quarter, pausing as you take time to walk up, browsing at the local craft shops and enjoying a coffee and cake break as you do so.

Commuters will delight in the ease of access to HS1 and the 55 minute journey only to London, to return to coastal living and a life by the sea.

What the Owner says:
I just love my apartment! Being on the first floor gives an added sense of security and I really enjoy grabbing a book and relaxing in the lovely gardens and taking an evening walk down to the Harbour Arm. My lounge has an off-set additional seating area that feels like another room but is still open plan to the main living space and is a joy. Plenty of space in the bedroom and a bath to relax in after a hard day’s work just caps it all off!

The car is safe in the dedicated space in the car park to the side as well.
